Do You Have K'nex You Aren't Using? I'll Buy Them For My Roller Coaster!

Saturday, July 18, 2020 5:23 PM

Wooooow it's been a hot minute since I posted here. Anyway, back in middle school, I started building a K'nex roller coaster. Then I stopped. Then I started again. Then I stopped. Then I started again. Then I stopped. Then I started again. Then it sat in storage for seven years. I'm 28 now, and I'm finally finishing the ****ing thing. In my mom's garage, since with Covid happening I'm not working right now.

But I'm starting to run out of certain pieces. So, if you have K'nex you want to sell, I'll buy them from you for $2 a pound plus whatever the shipping costs are. PM me or just comment below and we'll work something out. Thanks and have a great day!

Wish I still had my 10k+ pieces to add to your cause, but sadly I do not. I love that you're using the original roller coaster cross-ties and track.

I wish I could help you.

What you have is VERY impressive. Don't give up.

My goal is to one day start working on a ball contraption that goes through my entire house. I won't even start until I retire.

When that happens...I will ask you to sell off what you don't want. I still LOVE quality construction toys.

I still have a smallish Screamin’ Serpent set up in the counter on the landind in the stairs. It’s orobably only 4’ tall but eventually I’ll rebuild it using more parts of the 3 sets I bought back on 2000.

Very cool! I'm pretty sure I have one of the original Knex roller coasters in my parent's attic from when I was a kid. I'll drop by their house tomorrow and see if it's still there collecting dust. If so, I'll PM you and it's yours.
